In one of the biggest online poker events of the year, a field of 1,089 — across five starting flights — in the GGPoker Spring Festival Super MILLION$ $10,300 ME-H has been reduced to a final table of nine after about seven hours of Day 2 play.
The remaining players have a very handsome prize of $1,537,605 waiting the champ, with everyone having locked up $192,201.
The player who has best positioned himself for that career-defining score is Joakim Andersson. A Swedish player without much in the way of live cashes, Andersson has been a consistent force in the biggest online stuff over the past year or so, and he'll bring a very impressive stack of more than 100 big blinds into the final day. Michael Zhang, Sergio Aido and Dan Smith were just some of the big names hitting payouts courtesy of Andersson's excellence on Day 2.
Others of note at the final table include Julian Stuer, Roman "RRomashka" Emelyanov, and American pros Alex Foxen and Taylor Paur, though the latter two are among the shortest stacks.
Players who made the money but busted short of the final table included the likes of Dario Sammartino, Nick Petrangelo, Ole Schemion, Adrian Mateos, Sam Greenwood, David Peters and cash game legend Linus Loeliger.
The final table participants get the next day off before convening on Tuesday afternoon at 2 p.m. EDT for the livestreamed final table. Come back to PokerNews and the GGPoker channels to find out who becomes the next poker millionaire.
